Vonavi – Travel Freak
Out October 15, 2014
“Vonavi” is the project of of Andy Ivanov, a 21 year old producer from the Ukraine. Even though still a young producer, Andy has been active in the electronic music scene for quite some time now under the synonym “Famou” before starting his new project “Vonavi”. In his own words Andy was ready to depart from the dance and EDM sounds which he focused on earlier and explore a new, more individual and experimental sound. Along with organic instrumentation, ‘real’ instruments’ such as guitars, electric bass, and analog synth Andy started to focus on his new productions as Vonavi in 2013.
The sound of Vonavi is very individual. It is electronic music that works best when listened to closely. Vonavi has a talent for creating little closed worlds within his music. It is not body music, neither is it purely headphone music but rather the sort of soundtrack that immediately paints a colorful picture of mystical and quirky landscapes. The sounds he uses are very visual and the titles he chooses for his tracks seem to fit perfectly to the content. His music is futuristic yet very organic.
His first single “Travel Freak” describes this sort of feeling best. It features many of the warm analog tweaking that keeps reappearing throughout his tracks and perfectly paints an image of fuzzy landscapes and a certain child-like curiosity and melancholy. His music is some of the most earnest and consistent sounding music we’ve heard in a while and it doesn’t try to be anything else than what it is – Vonavi’s own little universe.
“Travel Freak” is also the first single of his self-titled debut album “Vonavi-Vonavi” which will be released in full in November 2014 on Sunlinxx Records.

p e a c e FIRE – Mystic Body (SNLNX011)
Release Date: 06/03/2013
We are very proud to welcome back p e a c e FIRE for his second release on Sunlinxx Records. Entitled “Mystic Body”, his newest work is an exploration of harmony, color, and most of all power. As is the case with most of his works there is nothing forced about the way his music evolves, yet most of them are written in a style well outside electronic music conventions. You will feel the climax, hear the peak, be transported along a beautiful story arc, but never will there be a forced attempt to hammer home the hook. In other words, p e a c e FIRE writes outstanding linear compositions, creates geometrical shapes of triumphant chord progressions, and knows how to write melodies that sing.
The release is accompanied by a super relaxed, futuristic R’n B interoperation by Hemingway. The remix manages to be both a is breezy and criminally hard grooving rendition of the original. Keenhouse delivers a mystic reinterpretation, combining classical piano and dark electronic landscapes. Approaching the original from a somewhat ghostly angle, his interpretation is a slow, and guilty journey into the abyss. GonDeep’s version is a DJ friendly remix that will fit perfectly in any Deep House or Downtempo set. With just a tiny hint of “caliente”, GonDeep’s remix breathes, envelopes , ebbs and flows. hypnotizes you.
In his own words, p e a c e FIRE sees himself as a bridge. Harmonizing ideas that appear separate, in paradox, and in contradiction. To p e a c e FIRE sound and color are one experience. It is that what some might call a universal language. Music merely being one slice, one manifestation of the same thing. Being p e a c e FIRE all comes together in his own studio ‘The Rainbow Room’ where p e a c e FIRE is currently working on his own musical and visual productions as well as a full-length album to be released in 2013.
Past tracks include:
Death by English Single (Sunlinxx Records)
Baghdad Rainbow and Sapphire both of which rang a bell on Discodust with ‘Sapphire’ eventually being included in a Grum Mix for Radio BBC 1.
Notable Remixes include a remix for Swiss Duo Division Kent – The Year of Magical Thinking and Af the Naysayer – ‘Briefing Room’.

p e a c e FIRE – Death by English
Release Date February 5, 2013
Tokyo-based p e a c e FIRE writes intricate electronic music which showcases his talent to balance interesting sonic qualities with well-thought-out composition. A feat that often is a ‘either-or’ in the world of electronic dance music. In fact, it seems that p e a c e FIRE listens so closely to his environment and influences that, as is often the case with honest musical expression, his music could bear a label but might as well completely speak for itself.
In his own words p e a c e FIRE sees himself as a bridge. Harmonizing ideas that appear separate, in paradox, and in contradiction.
To p e a c e FIRE sound and color are one experience. It is that what some might call a universal language. Music merely being one slice, one manifestation of the same thing. It then comes as no surprise that p e a c e FIRE is somewhat of a renaissance-man.
For his latest release ‘Death by English’ p e a c e FIRE did not only produce the music but all visuals as well. It should be seen as a complete work of art, a complete expression of what p e a c e FIRE stands for. But instead of giving you more adjectives and analogies we give you ‘Death by English':
